SDF's drill under pretext of 'protecting Japanese'

By KCNA


Recently, Japan's Defense Ministry gave publicity to the drill of the "Self-Defense Forces" (SDF) for "protecting the Japanese" in simulated contingency on the Korean peninsula.


This is a revelation of the sinister intention of the Japanese reactionaries to justify their wild ambition for turning Japan into a military power and launching reinvasion by stoking extreme unrest and fear throughout the Japanese society.


Orchestrated during the drill was such a farce that several hundred SDF members stormed a school and "rescued" and evacuated citizens there. It is as clear as noonday that such drill will stir up bitterness towards the DPRK throughout the Japanese society.


Meanwhile, the Japanese authorities are mulling spending a huge amount of money on beefing up the military muscle, including the development of the weapon for intercepting drones with high-power laser, for which it has come under bitterer public accusations and rejection.


Against this backdrop, the Japanese reactionaries cunningly seek to turn the public anger into hatred and chauvinism against the Koreans.


What is apparent here is that the present Japanese authorities have vividly and openly revealed through the drill their ill design to reinvade Korea.


"Protection of the Japanese" being trumpeted by the Japanese reactionaries is a replica and extension of "protection of Japanese residents", a pretext oft-used by the Japanese imperialists for provoking wars of aggression in the last centuries.


In 1894 when the Kapo Peasant War broke out in Korea, the Japanese imperialists sent their army and navy to Korea under the pretext of "protecting" the Japanese residents, which caused the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War.


In the early 20th century, they invaded Korea under the pretext of "protecting Japanese residents", and committed massacres and genocides out of chauvinism in the wake of the great Kanto quake and during the "punitive operation in Jiandao" under the pretext of "protection of the Japanese."


All these facts show that Japan invaded Korea under the pretext of "protecting Japanese residents" in the past and Japan today is to launch reinvasion under the excuse of "rescuing" Japanese.


However, the militaristic maniacs' moves to revive the imperial era will only precipitate their self-destruction.


The Korean nation hardens its will to surely make Japan, the sworn enemy, atone for the past crimes.


Japan will have to pay dearly for its sinful conducts in the 21st century as well as its heinous crimes in the 20th century.
